Selena Gomez Silences Body Shamers After Criticized Over Bikini Photos

The 'Hands to Myself' singer hits back at Internet trolls who body shamed her for showing her scars from a kidney transplant and her thicker body in bikini during her Australian vacation.

AceShowbiz - %cSelena Gomez% tears down "the beauty myth" in response to online criticisms about her recent bikini photos. The 25-year-old singer/actress was photographed rocking a bikini on a private yacht during her trip to Australia with her friends over the weekend. She proudly displayed her scars from her kidney transplant, but some people quickly criticized her for her thicker body.

Taking to her Instagram account on Tuesday, March 20, the former "Wizards of Waverly Place" star stated that she chose not to meet people's expectations of beauty, but instead "to take care of myself." She also shared footage of her having fun with her friends on a boat in Sydney.

She wrote along with it, "The beauty myth- an obsession with physical perfection that traps modern woman in an endless cycle of hopelessness, self consciousness, and self-hatred as she tries to fulfill society's impossible definition of flawless beauty. I chose to take care of myself because I want to, not to prove anything to anyone. Wind in her sails."

Selena is in Australia to attend a Hillsong Church conference. Her on-/off-boyfriend %cJustin Bieber%, who also attends the same church as Selena, is not attending the conference as the couple reportedly decided to take some time apart.

While Selena was spotted getting cozy with another man during her trip Down Under, Justin reportedly has a hard time being apart from her. "Justin has Selena on the brain constantly. He is trying to drown it out by hanging with friends and doing stuff on his own time but he keeps thinking about her," a source tells "He always wants to be around her, talk to her and be with her. She is like a drug for him, he just needs more and more and more."

The Canadian pop star "can't wait until she is back because he wants to really wine and dine her upon her return and really kick start the relationship back up again," the so-called insider goes on revealing.
